Yes, I meant TCS. The Traction Control System. The alert light comes on. After turning engine off then back on, it clears up, then reappears after a while when slowing down. Sometimes it occurs frequently, other times it stays off for months.

All I have to say is, RTFM. It may lead to an answer.

I took this from my own (Same year accord obviously.), and answering based on what you've told us so far.
"When it [TCS] senses a front wheel losing traction, it applies braking to that wheel. The TCS activation indicator flashes when this occurs."

ahhh ok now i get it. your not crusing around with your spare on are you? or different tire sizes or wheel sizes right? if you are NOT. then it might be the tcs sensor which is located in the hub. its just a magnetic sensor that monitors the speed relationship between a drive wheel and the other wheels. if it notices that a wheel is spinning faster than the other ones, then it must be losing traction

Also, are you noticing any changes when you accellerate? If you are, that means the TCS Might be activating, otherwise it's probably what lightshow said.
